S.Scott Rohrer is a social historian whose research focuses on the impact of religion on early American society. In studying religion’s influence on assimilation, migration, and revolution, Scott seeks to bring the past to life by writing about the outsized characters—both famous and not-so-famous—who inhabited early America. His most recent book, titled Jacob Green’s Revolution, which was released in fall 2014 by Penn State University Press, tells the dual story of a radical Presbyterian minister who backed secession from the British Empire and a conservative Anglican loyalist who remained an ardent supporter of King George III. He also is at work on a larger study about the ways religion contributed to revolution in the British Atlantic world.
